Hello everyone! I wanted to kick this week off on the right foot, so this post will be a bit on the motivating side. We are at a critical time in life where we literally have access to the world at our fingertips. Whatever dreams and aspirations you have, it is ALL possible.
If you wanted to learn how to play the guitar, for example, all you have to do is jump on the internet and watch a few “how-to” video’s or find a local teacher on sites like YELP. If you wanted to further your education, you can apply for and take classes online RIGHT NOW! If you wanted to build a support group for an important cause, you can easily put together a fan page within minutes and begin building your team. The list can quite literally go on FOREVER!
So what is the difference between successful people and unsuccessful people? It’s simple, they take action and continue to find ways to make it happen, by doing whatever it takes. They throw the excuses out the window. With all this technology, our lives have become much more simpler, but I hear people say they are too busy. The point of MOST technology is for luxury and saving time, how are we even MORE busy than ever?
To me, it boils down to ONE word. PRIORITY. I have written MANY posts on this, but we ALL need the gentle reminder every once in a while. If living out your dream is a priority to YOU, it WILL happen. We know that it CAN happen, but you are the determining factor if it ever WILL happen.
It’s time to put the excuses in the trash, and stand up for your dreams. This time of year (beginning of the school year) wreaks of starting fresh. Take your life to the NEXT level! PUSH the limits and set the tone TODAY! Do 10 times the amount of work today and create your own momentum! Take action, believe and stick with the script. Forget ALL the past doubts and failures, today is the day you are going to PUSH your way into success (however you define it).
Get up and GOOOOOOOO!!!
Let me know (in the comment section) RIGHT NOW, what you are going to do to PUSH yourself to the next level!
To Your Massive Success,
Ps. Keep your eye out for The Motivation Files!!!
What would you do if there is a sack of money laying in the middle of the street? Would you pick it up and report it? Or would you take it home without saying a word…and ultimately spend it? It is a VERY interesting question to pose. I hear all kinds of answers when I ask this question to my audience.
The problem with EVERYONE’S answer is that it is as hypothetical as the question. Sure, you said that you would “report” the sack of money to the authorities, but was that just to sound good in front of other people? Or would you really follow through with what you said?
The other thing you may want to think about is that how the answers were presented to you. Did you simply choose one of my selected answers or did you create a new resolve yourself? For example, if you found this sack of money, you could also take some for yourself and report the remaining stash.
The point I am trying to make is that we have the ability to use our brains to make decisions and it is the thoughts we developed during these thinking periods that determine our actions. Whether your thoughts are limited by other people or your own hindrances, the actions we take from our thoughts REALLY define who we are.
We tend to be DIFFERENT individuals when we are around other people, BUT the real test in character is who we are in private. Who are you when nobody is looking? That is the REAL question. You can tell me ALL your good attributes, how responsible you are, and how great of a citizen you would be by returning the sack of money, but what REALLY matters is what you would ACTUALLY do when nobody is around.
Who we are behind closed doors is imperative to our overall success in life. You can tell me you read 15 books a week, but if you really don’t, the only person you are hurting is yourself. We MUST be real with ourselves and STOP trying to fool everyone into thinking we are people WE REALLY ARE NOT!
At the end of the day, we are simply lying to ourselves. Real character is built and maintained by being the person we say we are behind closed doors. To act in accordance with who we say we are regardless of WHERE we are and WHO is around is being REAL with ourselves,
I want to challenge you today to do a little critical thinking. Think about the scenario I gave and develop thoughts about what you would REALLY do in that situation. It is important we not only KNOW ourselves, but develop the people we are. And if it means challenging our character, then that’s what it is.
It’s not going to be easy at first, but in the end, you will be a BETTER, more evolved person. Take the time today and let’s make sure our thoughts are in line with our desired actions. Build your character TODAY!
To Your Massive Success,

I was getting ready to go to visit my brother’s house yesterday when I overheard an interesting story being reported on TV.
It was a story of a maid who has never had a day off in 20 years! She has literally worked every day for 20 years…think about that.
She is a single mother raising THREE children and has multiple cleaning gigs to make ends meet.
This hardworking woman put herself in the hospital multiple times because of exhaustion. She overworked herself on several occasions to the point her body couldn’t handle the demand.
The amazing point about her story was that she was incredibly positive about life and the people around her. Customers were extremely happy with her work and she contantly surpassed her bosses expectations.
Her boss knew for years that this one particular maid was struggling to make ends meet and was truly giving life her best shot. Even through the exhaustion she somehow managed to get her job done…WITH EXCELLENCE!
She never complained and you could see the love and admiration her children had for her.
So finally one day, her boss linked up with an organization that donates time & money to hardworking people in need. So this maid went to a residential home to clean as usual. But this day was different!
This organization surprised her with a day (she thought she was going into work to clean) full of luxury. She got a massage, new clothes and a chef to cook for her the whole day. She still couldn’t believe she was “working”…
Finally the leader of the organization stepped out and informed her what was going on and who was behind it…the grand finale? The organization donated the house she thought she was going to clean to her!!! Completely renovated and paid for in cash!!!
This story had me a bit choked up. It was not only inspiring, but gave a glimmer of hope to dreams coming true.
So could the “Switch” happen to you today?
You never know the day it ALL turns around. The day your dreams actually come into fruition. Things can literally happen in an instant! You whole life as you know it can “switch” (like a lightswitch) at any moment.
I believe if we simply keep believing…keep taking action towards our goals…eventually they WILL come true! And who know’s the “switch” can happen today!
So keep positive and work hard…as these attributes pay off!
Let me know what you think about THE SWITCH in the comment section!

Helloooo!!! I wish you were here!!! It’s amazing up here!
Before I tell you where I am, I just wanted to thank you for stopping by and reading my posts! I seriously appreciate it and definitely am grateful my audience is enjoying the material. That is what keeps me going!
I now have friends and family sharing my posts on Facebook and telling me they look forward to my blog everyday! Now that is absolutely humbling.
This whole thing started by me wanting to share the information I was learning on my personal development journey. I was reading so many books, articles , etc. that were helping me out personally, that I figured I’d share with the world. Hey, if it worked for me, it will work for someone else.
And here we are today, pushing through stronger than ever! I remember back about 3 years ago my Cousin’s Wife Jen (hey Jen!) texted me asking what had happened to one of my blogs I was posting about celebrities and business. She asked about multiple things and said she envisioned me running a business sharing my thoughts with the world (she knew how much I was into the personal development industry) through writing/speaking.
Anyway, I brought that up because I clearly remember being up the mountains (enjoying some rest & relaxation) and I was reading a book titled “The Power” by Rhonda Byrnes. This is significant because Jen recently asked for a recommendation on a good read and this was the book I recommended (without remembering that time 3 years ago).
I mentioned this to say how funny it is when things come full circle. Here I am sharing my thoughts with the world through writing/speaking and here she is enjoying the book “The Power”. A text from her yesterday, “Great recommendation“! Now that is gratifying! Especially because I never mentioned this story to Jen until now…
The law of attraction is so real it will blow your mind!
So you want to know where I AM???
Cloud 9!!! In complete gratitude for the beautiful life I have been blessed with!
Thanks Again for reading and ENJOY the Journey!

Is your armor on? I know exactly what it feels like to have doubt try to get in the way of your vision. It attempts to eclipse your dreams with the fog of negativity. How we perceive doubt and doubters will determine our outcome. I’m not sure about you, but a fire sets deep down inside when I hear a doubter talk.
At the same time, it’s almost funny to hear them talk; their pitiful little excuses praying on your failure. It’s sad, but the truth is, they don’t want you to succeed. Actually, they are scared because if you DO conquer your dreams, it indirectly challenges THEM and who THEY are. And we all know haters enjoy their normalcy. They absolutely LOVE being comfortable. They avoid any sort of challenge by any means possible.
You have to sit back and ask yourself, what are they doing that’s so significant? Whose lives are they changing? What good are they providing society? What service or product are they bringing to the table that will enhance lives and bring prosperity? These average low-thinking folks aren’t on the same level as you.
They can’t even compete with you, that’s why they doubt everything you do. They aren’t even on the same playing field; they can’t touch you. They come nowhere near your hard work and dedication. Your persistency and consistency is killing them inside; this isn’t even a competition. You think and act different than doubters do. You are on another realm of life attempting the unthinkable and doing the impossible…
Meanwhile, the doubter is on the couch eating junk, complaining there is nothing on TV. Yet have the nerve to even make a remark to someone who is out there striving to accomplish their dreams. What a joke! Your dream must be bigger than doubt and the doubters.
You must protect your dreams and visions with authority. Don’t let the negativity of a non-believing doubter sway you in ANY way! Your dreams are worth more than that. In fact, the value increases each time a hater says something. So don’t allow the doubt to bring you down; stand strong in the face of hate and remember that they simply aren’t on your level!
